Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra - Ravel: Complete is WFMT 'New Release Of the Week'

Bookmark and Share

This four-album set features Maurice Ravel's complete orchestral works and concertos, performed by the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra under its new music director, Lionel Bringuier. The choice of the composer was a carefully-considered artistic decision according to Bringuier: "For my first recordings with the Tonhalle Orchestra, I've opted for Ravel. We all know his Daphnis et Chloé, Boléro and La Valse. A complete cycle allows us to get to know some lesser-known works as well."
